The Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services is updated annually. It outlines the principles, scope and methodology adopted by IHPA to determine the National Efficient Price (NEP) and the National Efficient Cost (NEC) Determinations for Australian public hospital services for the specific financial year.
IHPA consults with all stakeholders including the general public prior to finalising the Pricing Framework for each year. The Pricing Framework emphasises IHPA’s commitment to transparency and accountability in how IHPA undertakes its work.
